Josh Turner to Celebrate 2007's Biggest Hits with America's Grand Ole Opry Weekend
Josh Turner, multi-platinum MCA recording artist and newest Grand Ole Opry member, will for the second year host the America’s Grand Ole Opry Weekend Year-End Special. The four-hour special will share some of the year’s biggest hits and most memorable country music moments of 2007. Listeners will hear “Wasted,” by Carrie Underwood, “Online,” by Brad Paisley, “Teardrops On My Guitar,” by Taylor Swift, “Firecracker,” from the host himself, Josh Turner, plus hits by newsmakers Sugarland, Rodney Atkins, Martina McBride and more. The special will air on Christmas and New Year’s weekends, and is available to country radio stations across America from Westwood One.
It’s been a whirlwind year for Turner, who was invited to join the Opry in September, was officially inducted in October, and competed for the first time ever for CMA Male Vocalist honors in November. Along the way, he climbed the charts with “Firecracker” off his October release EVERYTHING IS FINE and toured the country with CMA award-winner Sara Evans.
